Yung-Chuan Wei 蔡咏娟 passed away on January 7, 2022, at the age of 71. Yung-Chuan, also known as Jane, was wife to Alex Kai Yuan 魏開元; sister of Tuchih Tsai 蔡篤志 and his wife Maria Tham 譚翠霞; mother to Jeren, his wife Bonnie, and Crystal; and grandmother to Jordan, Kendall, and Ryland. She lived a full life and was taken too soon from her loved ones. Her positive outlook, laughter, and joy will be dearly missed and will live on in our hearts.

Yung-Chuan was born and raised in Taiwan and attended Tunghai University. She emigrated to the US with her husband Alex, living first in New Haven where her son Jeren was born. After moving to Elmhurst, Queens NY and then Chappaqua NY,  she worked for three decades at the United Nations, forming lifelong friendships with beloved colleagues.

For the past decade, Yung-Chuan enjoyed retirement at Laguna Woods playing many rounds of golf with friends, traveling around the world with Alex, and growing a beautiful garden with prized fruits and flowers.

  1. Our deepest sympathies and condolences to the Wei family. We are so sorry for the passing of Mrs. Wei. She was always very kind and thoughtful to us. She was especially generous to our daughter.
    We always enjoyed seeing her at family gatherings. She was easy to talk to and we always appreciated how she made us laugh. She was a “cool” mom to us. We will forever miss her!! Mr. Wei, Crystal, Jeren & family are in our thoughts and prayers.

  2. I remember Jane as an elegant and very intelligent woman. Her smile lit up the room and you felt special when she was talking with you. May her spirit continue to shine in our hearts.

  3. Crystal and family – please know that many New Yorkers are thinking of you all today and sending love and condolences.

  4. You are very missed, rest well
